Background: The successful management of ventricular septal defect (VSD) has been possible through the development of advanced techniques. In this regard, percutaneous VSD closure by employing different types of occluders as an alternative for surgery can help to achieve the most desirable postprocedural consequences. However, the studies reported contradictory results on the use of different brands of VSD occluders. Herein, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of published studies to assess pooled long-term success rate and potential complications of using the Nit-Occlud Lê VSD coil for VSD closure. Materials and Methods: Two reviewers began to deeply search the various databases for all eligible studies in accordance with the considered keywords. The inclusion criterion for retrieving the studies was to describe the mid-term or long-term consequences of VSD closing by the Nit-Occlud Lê VSD coil device. In the final, eight articles were eligible for the analysis. The follow-up time of the studies ranged from 6 months to 5 years. Results: The success rate of the procedure ranged from 87.0% to 100% considering the weight of each study, the pooled success rate of VSDs closure by Nit-Occlud Lê VSD coil device was 93.1% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 89.9% to 95.5%). The pooled prevalence of postprocedural residual shunt was estimated to be 9.6% (95%CI: 6.8% to 13.4%). The corrected pooled prevalence of trivial mild aortic regurgitation (AR) was 2.9% (95%CI: 1.5% to 5.4%); however, moderate-to-severe AR and complete heart block or right bundle branch block were shown to be rare. Conclusion: VSD closure using a Nit-Occlud Lê VSD coil device can lead to a high success rate with low rates of residual shunt, cardiac conductive or vascular disturbances.
